It has become increasingly nauseating listening to pseudo-reporters address former vice-president and candidate Joe Biden as “President-elect.” He is not President-elect. He is candidate-in-question.
This election has not been certified, making Biden the President of the United States. The Electoral College does not even meet until mid-December so in absolutely no way is it official. Although President Donald Trump has not been officially re-elected, it doesn’t mean another candidate has. It is both insulting and offensive that fake journalists go out of their way to call Biden and Kamala Harris president-elect and vice-president-elect, respectively, although it makes media people feel good to do so.
It is also massively disrespectful that after the media declared him the winner, Biden’s campaign team produced a pretend victory ceremony, as he and Harris gave pretend victory speeches. They then set up the faux “Office of the President-elect” and started setting up a transition team.
All this is happening in the midst of ongoing legal challenges the Trump legal team has made due to major irregularities that occurred on election night and after. On the evening of the election President Trump was winning the count in major swing states like North Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, but the next morning, lo and behold, Trump’s leads in most of these states mysteriously disappeared.
At a press conference conducted on Thursday, November 19, the Trump legal team led by Rudy Giuliani and including Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis, laid out the basis for their challenges and discussed astonishing illegalities regarding the voting machines and software used that will prove Trump won. Although they did not present the totality of the evidence, because that is not what legal teams do prior to going to court, they did assure a dismissive media that cheating and fraud occurred and it was done with the intention of making Trump lose the election.
But the response to this explosive news conference was pitiful. Kristin Fisher of Fox News falsely reported that it was a “colorful news conference” that was “light on facts” and that “so much of what he (Giuliani) said was simply not true or has already been thrown out in court.” She sounded more like a reporter auditioning for a correspondent position at CNN, ABC, NBC or CBS, but certainly not one who is “fair and balanced.” She’s just another reason people are leaving Fox and switching to NewsmaxTV.
While the media mostly ignored the facts, they did eagerly cover the Biden/Harris “news conference” where Biden naturally struggled to coherently answer softball questions. The take away from this meeting is that the Biden team is frustrated that the White House is not cooperating with a Biden “transition team” and is not sharing information about President Trump’s successful COVID19 task force Operation Warp Speed. Lost on the Biden campaign is the fact that they are not entitled to any information since he clearly is not the president-elect but merely the candidate-in-question.
